    C!verse Episode Concept & an Unrelated Story

    Hello there! It's been awhile since anything for the C!verse came out and for that i'm sorry, study, exercise and a few other pet projects have impeded me. This will be an admittedly small post in regards to the C!verse, i'll explain the wall of text later. So a short while ago I finished Cutie Mark Chronicles and asked some people to look over it and recently, some weeks ago now, I know i'm sorry, RDD and I discussed the fic in great detail.

    As it stands it seems beyond needing an editor and for me to change one scene, and perhaps play with one or two others it's a good episode. The problem, it;s not a good introductory episode and in hindsight that's completely right. The problem with that is that an making an introductory episode, that's the first episode is a hard thing to pull off. Still I think I've figured out a way to turn a suggested idea from RDD into an episode, I posted a trailer to it awhile back, but i'm going to be revising it anyway.

    The episode "Parasprites in The City" I've decided to take a point from the first five or so minutes of the S2 opener where each member of the cast was re-introduced to us and introduced to new audiences demonstrating their personalities and skills while solving a problem to show their comradery. I haven't got a full outline yet and suggestions are always welcomed. But it basically starts with someone shipping a crate of parasprites that gets broken open by carelessness, they weren't magical stunned so they went on a feeding frenzy forcing the cast to drop what they are doing, possibly lunch, and resolved the issue with a combination of speed, food, magic and other skills and trapping them in a box. But a few days later a rash of food thefts have started in town and no one knows who the culprit is, after Strawberry Sunshine's family vineyard was struck the cast get right into the thick of it.

    (Spoiler) One Parasprite survived, made mroe and now they are hunting in secret. The cast need to lure them out, catch them or lead them back to Everfree forest. This does introduced the possible problem of smart parapsrites, but I generally assume (as in just thought of it) that they have short life spans and without constant food the knowledge will quickly die out. The fic is still in it's planning stages though so we'll see what happens. I still intended for more C!verse posts, Canterlot, Cadence, ETC, but I can't guarantee when they'll come.

    On some other C!verse news, I have a few things to bring up that can't really be covered in a full blog post, due to not being large enough. Firstly, i'm considering changing the name of Everfree City, or the forest, I realized while writing that having the two constantly next to each other sounds a bit weird. Maybe it's just me, but does canyon think the name needs changing and if so, any ideas? :)

    Also, I don't plan on Discord being in this work, my reasoning is fairly simple, Celestia and Luna are, for lack of better words, significantly more war like in this verse and so aren't inclined to show mercy to a beat enemy. I've never belied that anything, including the Elements, is un-killable. So that's what they did, after sealing him in stone. I'm sorry if that's upsetting or unsatisfactory to anyone. Other villains were sealed away because they couldn't use the Elements or didn't have them.

    Also, given Changelings would be the primary S1 threat, Chrysalis in-particular, does anyone have nay thoughts on that. My current head-canon on Changelings can be seen in the Head-canon thread if anyone's interested, that's, sort of, where i'm thinking of going with it. Some if my initial rambling about Changelings in terms of story can be found in one of my earliest posts. Still, how would a society under siege by shape changers respond, given they have magic and magic leaves imprints would they be as much of a problem? ETC. Suffice to say there's a lot to consider where Changelings are involved. Plus what happens after Chrysalis is defeated? I'm considering Cadence offering them love magic freely, but maybe not. I'm also trying to think of why they didn't go after the Crystal Kingdom, i'm mostly thinking the heart is a perfect shield against them, so getting in undetected is impossible for them, while simply hard for others.


    Anyway, that's all on the C!verse for now, chances are i'll think of something to add as/if I finish posting this XD. So now to explain this other part of the post; I've recently been doing some M!verse writing and actually managed to shockingly, turn out three fics, "why can;t L!verse and C!verse work like that!?!" only one of them is of any significant length and Emeral and BB said they'd look over it, there's another involving Celestia/Amira, I now crack-ship, that get's a tad cloppish, sorry! It's probably not even as far as "In Heat of The Moment", probably less given my usual views on such things. I'm currently trying to secure one/two editors from the proofreaders group, but so far no bites. I had another in the works, but it's fallen through thanks to writers block.

    And finally one I sat down and banged out last night and edited today, it basically involves Celestia and Discord arguing, it's currently labeled with AU and Dark. It was inspired by a scene from Supernatural fairly heavily, I originally intended to just get the end scene out but then it became it's own thing. If you follow that link be warned, it gets dark and deals with child/spousal abuse and the story itself goes into child abuse. I'm sorry if that upsets or offends anyone, that was never my intent. Which is also why I'm mentioning it here, i'm, curious about people's opinions on the story and i'm not so sure about publishing it. So if anyone is interested, i'd be eager to hear their thoughts, it's not very long. I can provide a link or post it here/in a blog post as I originally intended to

    Here's the summary:

    Discord has existed for eon upon eons, though far more than he'd have liked of those eons were actually spent trapped in stone, but now he's free! And he's got a few questions for Celestia; so it seems a visit to Canterlot is in order.

    After-all, it's only natural for a father... to want to speak to his daughter.

    Their conversation goes as well as one might expect.

    Not so sure about that summary, it seems to, glib. Sorry for all this.  

    Also before it could come up, I know some people might be bothered by my take on Discords powers here (and possibly thehistroy for Luna/Celestia, but that's mostly just because it suited the fic) and I am sorry if it comes across as an attack on him, that wasn't my intent. I tried to balance it out as much as I could, Celestia is exhausted and Discords wounds already sealed as he left, but he's never dealt with someone actually causing him pain as opposed to simply sealing him and can't handle it very well.

    I'll likely be in bed soon, so that's why I might not respond.

    Thank you for reading, i'd love to hear your thoughts.

:facehoof: I'm so sorry. I knew there was something I missed. Yes there will be two more chapters before the story finishes, they just need editing, sorry for the confusion.

The fic was once one whole chapter and so I marked it as complete, but then I broke it up a few weeks ago for editing and uploading and forgot to change the tag.

Thank you for telling me though, it would have been embarrassing if it had gone on any longer. :pinkiehappy:

Interesting. Another thing for Celestia to regret as the ages past. Do you suppose that she'll take to wearing sneakers when she comes to her senses?

Somehow, I keep picturing the ponies of the future saying "Oooooh, look at me, I'm Celestia, I'm cool....Oh, LOOK!!!! I'm wearing sand shoes!!"

Yeah releasing Squirks a risky move, there's mroe to her plan than meets the eye though. :raritywink:

Not quite, I based it off Squirk G1 minion of the same name. Odd that they share the same name though. :trixieshiftright:

So is this in the main folder, or the Season 2 folder. Seems to be in both.

Also, I'm almost disappointed this won't be a TMNT crossover. And great job on making Squirk just so...alien.

#12 · 52w, 21h ago · · · Awaken ·

I initially put it in the main folder, as I was uncertain I was allowed to put it into the S2 folder. After getting permission I moved it, i'm not sure hwo to remove it form main though, i'll go see about doing that now, TY.

Edit:

Turns out I have no idea how to remove it.

Also, I'm almost disappointed this won't be a TMNT crossover. And great job on making Squirk just so...alien.

Heh, sorry about that and thank you, i'm glad that came across 'alien' is pretty much exactly what I was going for. :twilightsmile:

Releasing monsters will not make Celestia very popular.  I see no way that this can possibly go wrong.

>>3559258

It's certainly not a good call from a public relations point of view, I agree.

I see no way that this can possibly go wrong.

Of course it can't, releasing eldrich horrors from the dawn of time never goes wrong... right? :scootangel: Thanks for the comment.

Well, she's no pushover, that's for sure.

#22 · 50w, 5d ago · · · Battle ·

I've got to say, badass Cadance, not what I was expecting. Though this is a darker world, so it only makes sense she'd be stronger than her cannon counterpart. Makes me feel bad for Chrysalis if she's ever dumb enough to try what she did at the wedding.

#23 · 50w, 5d ago · · · Battle ·

>>3586623

Very true, thank you for the comment. :pinkiehappy:

>>3587003

Thank you for the comment I really appreciate it. Yeah, this version of Cadence has been on her own more than I imagine M!verse Cadence was. So she's a bit more proactive and used to dealing with threats. Though even canon Cadence can do some impressive stuff, like the force field in S3. I definitely imagine Chrysalis will have to put more thought into any plans involving Cadence in this verse, though if the upgrade goes to scale... wow, she'd going to be scary in S3.

Thanks again! :twilightsmile:

ph'nglui mglw'nafh Squirk R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!

You know what I just realized Cadenza reminds me of? With the way she's speaking, etc.? A magical girl, in the vein of Card Captor Sakura or Sailor Moon.

>>3587297

ph'nglui mglw'nafh Squirk R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!

You know, you're right! Squirk should totally build himself a R'lyeh, then he can sleep more comfortably and have fish people to look after him and serve as his heralds. :pinkiehappy:

That image and magical girls in general is disturbingly apropos, considering I've been re-reading the Sailor V manga and conceiving AU fics for it. Cosmic... :rainbowderp:

But yeah, I can see where you're coming form, translating justice/rage filled goddess of love speech into a modern goddess of love is tricky.

Granted magical rarely jams spears into their enemies stomachs and leave them at the bottom of the ocean, I get the impression her response would get a frosty reception at the annual inter-dimensional meeting. :scootangel:

Thanks for the comment!

#26 · 50w, 5d ago · 1 · · Battle ·

This was amazing. I loved everything in this pretty much. I know that's not too constructive but dang!! Although there were a couple of points where there was a misspelling and a few times a part of a sentence repeated itself twice. Nothing a quick run through on Word couldn't fix.

Pink Pony of Love vs Cthulhu - Fight!

I'm not sure if its a good idea to keep Squirk relatively close to Roam though that's a bunch of evil cultists waiting to happen.

Cadenza was met with pain, acidic blood coated her body as she dived. Cadenza was met with pain: Acidic blood coated her body as she dived, stray blasts from the amulet cut at her, and Squirk's tentacles crashed against one another, sometimes hitting her.

I think this might have a duplication.

Squirk or Corona will now do something clever that no one saw coming. That is my theory.

That's awesome, you win twenty internet points!

Oh and don't worry, Squirk's been resealed in the 'largely' uninhabited northern sea once again and almost no one knows who he is or even remembers he exists. heh, in hindsight, eating Krang probably wasn't his brightest idea.

I think this might have a duplication.

I tried searching the document and I couldn't find a duplication, still i'll keep a lookout for it, thanks for the tip. :twilightsmile:

Well, Cadance took a level in badass, that's for sure. One thing, though. *Punches Celestia with a tire iron* You do NOT stop distress calls with eldrich abominations rear their head and the citizenry's lives are at stake! :flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage:

#35 · 50w, 19h ago · 1 · · Battle ·

>>3604125

Glad you liked my take on Cadence. :pinkiesmile: I'm pretty sure Corona would just shrug of a tire iron, given her response to Squirk in chapter one. :scootangel:To be fair though, she did plan on stepping in to resolve the matter herself if Cadence couldn't handle it. Not that, that is a justification.

Thanks for commenting!

Poor Cadenza. Poor Celestia.

I know that feel, it's exactly what I was aiming for. But hopefully they can straighten things out in the future. :scootangel:

Just as Celestia has to be crazy to better fight the real threat, the amulet has to be whole so it can be more properly destroyed.

Just as Celestia has to be crazy to better fight the real threat, the amulet has to be whole so it can be more properly destroyed.

What real threat? Sorry if I misunderstood. :twilightblush: No clue what's going to happen to the amulet, I guess that's in other authors hands now, destroying it 'could' potentially lead it's magic back to Squirk, or do something else, or nothing at all. Hopefully the mystery will be intriguing. :scootangel:

Thanks for the comment. :pinkiehappy:

>>3611386

Zecora point blank told the Luna Six that for the world to be saved from whatever crisis ends this season, Corona had to be a well-intentioned extremist with a heaping helping of paranoia. Her being sane right now would get everypony killed.

>>3611396

:rainbowderp: I feel like I've missed something rather large. I know she mentioned a storm of chaos, but I figured the prophecy wasn't 100%, though I could and probably am wrong. TY for the clarification.

>>3610908 A tire iron has iron in it, which traditionally nullifies magic. I'm also real and she isn't. Therefore I auto-win against her. :rainbowlaugh:

>>3611561

How can one defeat that which is not there? :trollestia: :scootangel:

Ahh, there we go, I was wondering what Corona had gotten up to while Cadance was off fighting the beastie.

That was a somewhat touching meeting between the two of them, it's a shame Corona couldn't let go of her issues.

>>3611813

Thanks for the comment, i'm glad you found it touching, that's more or less what I was going for, hopefully the two of them will get another chance in S3. :twilightsmile:

Thinking it over, it was Lucifer who loved God so much to not bow to his master's creation, and that love is what caused the original schism of Heaven. Celestia may have that love to dwarf the sun for her sister, her people, her niece, but all of that only forces her down that path of madness, trying to break the hold Luna has on her subjects in the name of protecting her from herself. Deep shit right there.

Okay. Celestia needs punching. Massive amounts of punching. Eff. HER! :flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage:

Does Squirk appear in this story?
